Filmform (est. 1950) is dedicated to preservation, promotion and worldwide distribution of experimental film and video art. Constantly expanding, the distribution catalogue spans from 1924 to the present, including works by Sweden’s most prominent artists and filmmakers, available to rent for public screenings and exhibitions as well as for educational purposes.
The scenery is New Delhi. The time, when the past for a short moment meets the future in a spectacular show. Gunilla Klingberg and Peter Geschwind filmed the view from their window during a stay in New Delhi that lasted for three weeks starting from New Years Eve 2000-2001. Klingberg and Geschwind filmed short sequences every day without moving the position of the camera. A selection of the footage was then put together in different layers. The result looks very much like compressed diary notes where everything is allowed to happen at the same time rather than in a chronological order.

He works with installations and physical animation with lights. Geschwind’s works take place in the realm of apparent motion. That is, it seems as if things are moving. When it comes to apparent motion, as with real motion, there’s a lot going on. It hinges on key bits and pieces that if removed would make it not an illusion.
